Earthquake in Japan- News report.

We have been learning about the earthquake and the tsunami that has caused so much devastation in Japan. We have read news articles, watched some video footage and read some emails from a friend of Miss Martindale’s who is a teacher in Japan. We used his emails to get some quotes to put into our reports.

Please comment with any facts you can find out about the Japanese earthquake. This could be facts from the news reports or scientific information about why the earthquake and tsunami happened.

    (sorry about the commet that was axadently posted)
    The Prime Minister of Japan, Naoto Kan, has said the country is having its most difficult time since World War II.Japanese media says 1,596 are known to have died in the disaster but police warn that more than 10,000 people could have died in Miyagi region alone.Huge numbers of survivors are staying in emergency shelters with many people not having water, heat and power.The huge 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit Japan in Tokyo at 05.46 am on Friday morning. The huge earthquake shook Japan, causing a powerful tsunami that sent ships crashing into the shore and carried cars through the streets of coastal towns.
    Officials says that the waves from the tsunami were a high as 10m (33ft).The earthquake destroyed Tokyo’s Disneyland car park and caused severe fires in the surrounding area, including one at an oil refinery. The team includes specialists from fire brigades across the UK, including Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Hampshire, Kent, Lancashire, Lincolnshire, West Sussex, West Midlands, and Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue.
    This is thought to be the biggest earthquake ever to hit Japan.

    I feel really sorryfor the ones in Japan that have died in this earthquake or the people that have lost reletives or friends in this disaster. I hope the goverment find a way to rebuild part of Japan because most of it has been destroyed in this tsnami. This is what I’ve reseached about earthquakes. An earthquake is where there is a sudden tremor or shake in parts of world and theres usually some in japan, japan are even prepared for an earthquake because this is how often they get them. England very rarly get them. The ground seemes solid but its really made out of parts which are called plates. The plates move slowly and when they meet this is called a fault. When they rub together theres a movement which forces waves to come to earth surface. This is how an earthquake happens.

    I have some news from Japan. Due to the tsunami a Fukushima nuclear energy central broke down. In nuclear central they obtain energy heating very dangerous materials, radioactive ones. These materials, when heated, release lots of energy by some complicated processes, which have to be carefully controlled by cooling the material containers, called reactors, when they are too hot. The tsunami broke down the cooling sistem of Fukushima central and its workers had to find a way to avoid the radioactive materials getting to hot and exploting. The solution they found was to let some air out of the containers, but some radioactive particules float in this air and make it toxic. Meanwhile, things are getting more and more complicated because two of the fours reactors there are in the central have caught fire and there are radioactive air escapes which are not under control. The people who lives around tha central have been evacuated (you already know what an evacuation is).

    Tokyo, tha capital and biggest city in Japan, is running out of food and oil because the train rails and other connections with the Northern part of the Japanese Island, where the the tsunami has affected, are cut. And, moreover, it seems that the wind is blowind the toxic air in Tokyo’s direction. The Japanese are behaving in a very calm and organized way: they are very prepared for earthquakes and they know what to do, but they say to be very scared about the radiation from Fukushima central. Lots of families, specially kids and old people, are moving to southern and eastern cities and towns. Some of them are leaving the country. I know a Japanese family part of which is thinking about coming to Spain, as we can put them up.

    The whole situation is terrible :(.
